Don't feel too bad; The Golden Gate Bridge had the same plans. Toll was $2 for incoming (to SF) traffic when the construction costs were paid off. There was a lot of discussion about maintenance and such; they decided to raise the toll to $3. A couple of years later, they changed it to $5 on Fridays and weekends. Recently, I believe, it was changed to $5 full-time. Pretty pricey for something that was supposed to be free.
